Hey Allergymedsandcats! I'm beginning to build this deck too, and was hoping a more experienced pilot like you could help me? I'm using your budget list for my biggest reference point for my deck however, because my meta is more casual than competitive insofar it doesn't have stax/blood pod/breakfast hulk/doomsday/chainveil/etc etc. (link here if you want).
What is your opinion on an odd card like Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip (and Drift of Phantasms ) to replace the expensive Gaea's Cradle (which I don't have yet)? And since I also don't have Dryad Arbor yet should I still include Crop Rotation just for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? Do you think Exploration (which I don't have yet) is good enough to warrant Gaea's Touch ? Also do you think Birds of Paradise or counterspells like Logic Knot / Arcane Denial / Abjure / Swan Song / Heroic Intervention are all suboptimal for my budget constraints? What other budget cards are worth mentioning for Edric?
I was also wondering if I should include Twincast / Mission Briefing / Flood of Recollection / Skullwinder / Beacon of Tomorrows to make up for the lack of warp density (I don't have Capture of Jingzhou / Nexus of Fate / Temporal Manipulation / Time Warp )? Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer <3

Looks like a lot of fun... looking forward to seeing this in action.
In either case Exploration is a great card. It's basically free if you have a land in hand to replace the mana used casting it.

Awesome deck. One idea that caught my eye...
Since you have tons of draw - ridiculous draw power, I might add - would it make sense to add ways to drop lands faster? You could effectively ramp much quicker with a Burgeoning , Exploration , or even a simple Gaea's Touch . You are bound to always have extra lands to play with such a large hand.

Seeing as the plan of the deck seems to be: Play commander; win, I would suggest preventing opponent interaction. City of Solitude stops all interaction on your turn and can be easily chained into your commander or cast on the same turn. Hall of Gemstone has a similar effect but requires you to have a mana dork or rock that can produce ideally.
Yisan, the Wanderer Bard plays a very similar game with the some of the same cards. Look at some of the competitive Yisan decks for inclusions in his chains to go infinite and win. You already have some similar cards like Scrib Ranger and Quirion Ranger so including the few others like Wirewood Symbiote and Temur Sabertooth wouldn't hurt the deck all that much and still synergize. Also a favourite for both of those decks is Instill Energy for 1 mana haste and a free untap each turn.
If you want this deck to be more competitive I suggest adding ways to accumulate mana faster starting turn 1-2: Carpet of Flowers, Burgeoning, Exploration, Priest of Titania, and Gaea's Touch all satisfy that.
You also have no plan B. If your opponent casts Nevermore, Pithing Needle, Torpor Orb, Phyrexian Revoker on Primespeaker and you don't have an answer you're a sitting duck. Birthing Pod should be included for consistency as well as some ways of tutoring out answers: Worldly Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Spellseeker, Chord of Calling, etc.

Heartwood Storyteller seems like it would fit well in here.
Also with the mass amount of card draw you may want some more ways to slam your lands down faster: Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Exploration, Burgeoning, Gaea's Touch, Oracle of Mul Daya, Vernal Bloom (making them twice as valuable), etc.
Nylea, God of the Hunt is another non targetting trample enabler for Multani

I LOVE this brew, but sadly, Gaea's Touch is not pauper legal:
